Reebok Slither In a Duo of Snakeskin Instapump FurysRelease: 5 March 2021
The Reebok Instapump Fury has shown admirable longevity in the contemporary sneaker scene, largely thanks to the fact that its design was so ahead of the times when it first debuted in 1994. In the near-30 years since, it’s become a champion of quirky colourways and material stories, such as this upcoming snakeskin-covered duo.,
What’s the most radical component of the Instapump Fury? Some suggest it’s the blocky outsole, while others agree it’s the laceless inflatable upper. These two editions add some cold-blooded weight to the latter argument, as it accents the toe box, mid panel, tongue, and heel counter. While stark black and crisp white colour in the aforementioned inflatable sections. Between these two choices, the black pair is the standout with its contrasting brown python inserts.
Everywhere else follows standard Instapump conventions, such as the faux-carbon arch plate where the midsole foam is cored out, and foam midsoles imbued with Hexalite cushioning in the heel.
Given atmos’ proclivity for reptilian textures, it may come as a surprise that this is indeed not a collaboration with the Japanese retailer. But they will be one of the prime stockists come March 5 when these Furys release in presumably limited numbers.
